    put on his little show in front of 60 or so million Americans. This is starting to really look like 11 dimensional chess. Seriously.

      when you understand how your opponents think.

      You just set up the traps and they walk right into them. You can almost guarantee it.

      The don't deviate from their script. Learn the script, and you pretty much know what they're going to do.

      Obama's team knows their script. It's not hard, just read all the RW stuff and listen to them. They telegraph everything. They can't keep their mouths shut and couldn't keep a secret if their lives depended on it. They're like kids that way - they blab everything. They also can't think ahead, and don't seem to understand cause and effect at all.

      You just set out the bait, they take it, and you watch them get snared.

      The wily coyote analogy is pretty close to the truth.

        Obama knew if he chewed him out that Romney would come back with exactly what he did come back with. He had the transcript ready to go. I agree, it isn't -really- 11 dimensional chess. More like checkers.
